You Alone in the North Woods: The Lost Hunter's Guide.
New Hampshire State Fish and Game Dept., Concord.
Although designed for the lost hunter, this 4 by 5 1/2 inch handbook of survival guidelines is compact enough to be included in the backpack of anyone venturing on an outdoor, wilderness expedition in the north woods. Twenty-one major sections provide information and some illustrations about: what to include in a survival kit; the importance of informing a responsible person where you are going and when you plan to return; proper clothing and footwear; using maps and compasses; overnight preparation when lost; fire making procedures; fire starting in the rain; shelters; what to expect and do when spending the night while lost; keeping warm; signals; mental control; edible wild foods; first aid (cuts and wounds, fractures, sprains, frostbite, prolonged exposure to cold, shock, burns, heart attack); water safety; loading a boat; cold water survival and rescue; and special warnings for snowmobilers. Also included is the six-point sportsman's code advocating adherence to game laws, use of proper weapons, respect for the rights of property owners, courtesy for fellow hunters, proper shooting, and hunter safety.
